Cappy get your gun

Marvel's bringing Captain America back in a big way. Somebody’s wearing the new redesigned cap suit. Who could it be? Nothing is known (yet) about his identity other than the fact that he has an incredibly small penis… I mean he has to carry a pistol now right?

From here

“We definitely wanted a Captain America that still screamed, ‘This is Captain America,’ but this isn’t the same Cap you’ve been reading about,” says Ed Brubaker, the comic book’s writer. “This isn’t Steve Rogers.”

Brubaker, who has been writing the comic book for nearly three years, says he has always tried to emphasize Captain America’s military background. And the truth is, he adds, this isn’t the first time that the Captain has been armed.
“I’ve leaned on the ‘soldier’ part of supersoldier,” Brubaker says. “If you look at Cap in the 1940s, they have him with a shield in one hand and a machine gun in the other, and Bucky (the Captain’s World War II teen sidekick) has a flamethrower.
“In the ’80s they started changing his history, saying he’d never killed anyone.”

Are these guys out of ideas or what? First they kill off Cap because they don’t know what to do with him and then they have another assume the role with the big contribution of packing heat? I’m not outraged… I’m bored… ZZZZzzzzzZZZZzzzzzZZZZZ

Now this would be much more controversial and interesting right?

1) Well, Cap wasn't all that averse to firearms back in the day. He only got his no-kill ethos later (remember when it was a big deal when he shot a killed a terrorist?).

That being said, I prefer the "white-hat", boyscout Cap to the Dickweed Cap from Utimates. Even the old WW2 cap wasn't a dickweed who'd kick someone when they were down. Not even a Ratzi!

2) Second the Zs

3) Captain Christ, part of the Trinity of Power along with (Tom Tomorrow's) God Man and The Holy Space Ghost. Hey! It's sacre-licious!

Brings a whole new meaning to "busting a Cap."

His outfit makes him look like a trilobite. Gun? Whimpy! He shouldn't need no stinking gun.

He's alive. I saw him at Universal. He looked a little on the chubby side, but okay.

Does the new Cap drive a Hummer? That would complete the penis-less image.
